Hello everybody

I am here.. wow I missed this place

I have a bit of an update - my dad passed away on June 5th, 2013

Peacefully with all (most) his kids around his bed. He actually opened his eyes for about 5 minutes--- he started to tear up and smiled at us...he took about 5 -6 breaths and then was gone. I could not believe how peaceful it was.

I miss him terribly as the he was in palliative care the last 3 months and I was there a lot...as much as I could with two small kiddos and a full time job ... oh and a hubby too.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

and a public Christmas Apology to Mumof2

she was my partner in the ornament exchange last year and with everything going on with my dad well I just didn't send it. I found it a few weeks ago and finally mailed it today.. I hope she can forgive me and that I am welcome here again.

Beautiful day out, but very noisy here in the woods. Turkeys, mourning doves, cardinals, deer and Shaggy are all talking up a storm - sometimes all at once! Lots of road traffic, too. Today I am working at home - cleaning stock and later doing the paperwork from last month. I have all the windows that will open downstairs open - love the fresh air circulating through the house!!!

Be safe and MERRY!!!

I'm so sorry to hear about your dad. I'm glad that his passing was peaceful and that you got to be there. I'll keep you and the rest of your family in my prayers. If you ever need to talk, we are here for you.

Now it is my fathers turn. They would like to buy a flat, as houses are waaaaayyyyyyyyy to expensive around here. They worry that if they get sick and have to go to a nursing home all their money (and dads part of the inheritance) will be used for they care. In our country this is part of the social system.

Now we have to look for affordable flats, which isn't exactly easy. We live in a pretty expensive area and can't just move to other places.

Could you pray for us? We hope for wisdom to make the right decision. Besides we try to calm our grandparents down, as they get pretty worked up. Really don't know what's the reason for all this stressing that's going on around here.


You are in my thoughts.
